The Premier League have responded to proposed Super League plans on Tuesday.

The 14 clubs not involved in the so-called breakaway have unanimously rejected the plans.

An official statement read:

“The 14 clubs at the meeting unanimously and vigorously rejected the plans for the competition.

“The Premier League is considering all actions available to prevent it from progressing, as well as holding those Shareholders involved to account under its rules.

“The League will continue to work with key stakeholders including fan groups, Government, UEFA, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to protect the best interests of the game and call on those clubs involved in the proposed competition to cease their involvement immediately.

“The reaction proves just how much our open pyramid and football community means to people.”
